Winter's taken hold and truffle season is upon us, which can only mean one thing — it's time to celebrate one of the world's fanciest ingredients at Melbourne's huge annual truffle festival. Thought to be the largest celebration of its kind outside of Europe, Truffle Melbourne is back for its eighth edition this month, hitting the Queen Victoria Market's J and K Sheds from Saturday, July 10 to Sunday, July 11.

In between watching some four-legged friends doing live mock truffle hunts, you'll be able to sample a huge variety of sweet and savoury truffle-infused dishes across the weekend — think, truffle mac and cheese, truffle-topped pizza, truffle cannoli and more. There's even a four-cheese truffle gnocchi served hot from a parmesan wheel. Or, get your truffle fix in liquid form, thanks to the bar's specialty truffle-charged lineup of espresso martinis, G&T's, beers and ciders.

For kitchen inspiration, much-loved chefs including Guy Grossi (Grossi Florentino), Joseph Vargetto (Mister Bianco), Eileen Horsnell (Napier Quarter) and Jesse Gerner (Bomba) will host a program of cooking demonstrations covering everything from pork and truffle dumplings to a black truffle tiramisu.

And if you're in the market for some take-home truffle, there'll be plenty of stock from five of the country's leading growers, along with truffle-inoculated trees for planting at home.
